The Advanced Leadership Program

The Advanced Leadership Program is a high-impact and challenging developmental experience for elite female leaders. Over a career-defining, twelve-month journey, participants engage in a deep exploration of their own strengths and weaknesses as they relate to building and leading highly effective organisational communities. Purpose designed to stretch experienced leaders beyond their comfort zone, the ALP challenges participants to develop their critical thinking abilities and begin to unlock their full leadership potential. 


The program employs a multifaceted learning approach based on expert guidance, peer collaboration, self-analysis, experiential exercises and practical application. Theoretical exploration is continually overlaid with real-world experience to ensure that participants develop the adaptive skills needed to confidently overcome future challenges. This process is further enhanced through a combination of executive coaching and peer group mentoring, enabling participants to cultivate valuable peer level networks, build their self-confidence and hone the skills to lead at the highest levels.


Segmented into eleven key themes, the Advanced Leadership Program engages participants in a comprehensive exploration of the responsibilities and opportunities of senior leadership. Through exploring previous experiences, participants gain a deeper understanding of their innate drivers and derailers and develop the skills to take a more adaptive approach to current and future challenges.

Encompassing a sophisticated blend of synchronous and asynchronous learning, the ALP immerses participants in a multilayered development journey designed to ensure maximum individual impact. Coordinated via our state of the art learning management system, the program provides powerful and accessible learning.

All applicants enrolling into the Advanced Leadership Program must satisfy WLI’s admissions criteria and adhere to standard admissions policies and procedures. Enrolments are at the discretion of the WLI Admissions Department. Enrolment details may be obtained by contacting the WLI Admissions Department.

£2,500 Scholarships are available for this program
